Waking the Demon is a song by Bullet For My Valentine.

Frontman Matt Tuck on the record label's website: "It's important to us that fans can make a connection with our songs. For example, 'Waking The Demon' is about being bullied at school - which is something that me and most of the boys went though. The track is about one day, just turning round, and deciding to not take it anymore. I'd hope that our fans can relate to that."

The video shows a different interpretation, but still has the same concept. The main character, who is seen as being bullied most of the time by other schoolkids, crosses out each day on his calendar until he reaches a day a full moon will occur. Then he lures one of the bullies in and turns into the werewolf, in which he murders him. It takes the meaning more literally.
